No! Music queries the various dimensions of saying no and the price of independence. The theme days set off in search of the objectors and of possibilities for dissent in music: artists who work counter to the music industry, the expectations of the music market, against constrictive listening and performance habits. Musicians works explore discomfort in the face of marketing mechanisms, who refuse to play along, or, given pervasive auditory overload, are experimenting with the most radical break: the negation of sound itself. They also address the sounds that are not allowed to be heard: censored and banned music.

No! Music will open with a concert by Pussy Riot and a keynote address by Nadja Tolokonnikova.
zeitkratzer will ask where music begins and ends based on La Monte Young’s “Poem for Tables, Chairs, Benches and other Sound Objects” and John White’s “Drinking & Hooting Machine.” Other concert highlights include a new piece by the saxophonist and composer Matana Roberts, which she wrote exclusively for No! Music and will premier with the Chor der Kulturen der Welt; a rare performance by the Texan noise poet Jandek, who has trodden his very unique artistic and economic pathway since the early 1980s; and another commissioned production by the young Brazilian star Tiganá Santana covering the famous album Milagre dos peixes by Milton Nascimento. In 1973, after state censors demanded considerable changes to the lyrics, Nascimento re-recorded the album at the last moment almost entirely using tone syllables.
